Richard Waters first conceived the basic design of the Waterphone in 1968. In the years that followed he refined his invention and the instrument today is a gem of form and workmanship: perfectly functional and perfectly beautiful.

Kinji Hayashi was raised in TokyoJapan. A solo Butoh dancer since 1991, he has collaborated with numerous artists and groups such as Polish Theater director Miroslaw Kocur and San Franciscoplaywright Helen Pau. He has performed throughout the Bay Area with the Asian American Theater Company, Theaterworks, Theater of Yugen and Ghost in the House. He also toured with HRG inCalifornia and with Harupin Ha in Japan and the US. He has received Dance Bay Area's Commissioning Project Grant, Zellerbach Family Fund, City of Oakland Cultural Arts Division's Creative Artist Fellowship and the Pritzker Foundation Endowed Fellowship. Caring for turtles is a source of his inspiration in this fast-paced world.
